PTO News

The North Hills PTO would like to welcome everyone to the new school year! 

      Every parent or guardian of a North Hills student is considered a member of the PTO.  We invite you to become an active participant in our organization.  PTO has many exciting programs and activities planned for the 2017-2018 school year.  Since we do not require membership dues, we depend on parent volunteers, donations and our one and only fundraiser to help offset expenses.  Money collected directly benefits our students by providing field trips, skating party, track meet shirts, assemblies, the annual Memory Book and other fun programs and activities throughout the school year.

The North Hills PTO meets each month to discuss and plan upcoming fundraisers, activities, and events to benefit the faculty, staff, and students of North Hills. Our North Hills PTO is also involved in coordinating the Scholastic Book Fair, School Store, Skating Party, Family Festival, classroom celebrations, and various other activities here at North Hills. Our dedicated volunteers also devote a tremendous amount of time to organizing and preparing the yearly Memory Book. We would like to thank all of our PTO members for their time and energy.   The PTO is always looking for members to help plan and participate in the many activities taking place around the school. We would like to invite everyone to take time from their busy schedules to attend the PTO meetings and help in any way that you can.
